Kathy Rizzo hosts the next installment of the Heurich House Museum’s all-star History & Hops series. On Thursday, May 18, 2017 from 6:30-8:30pm, the DC Brewers’ Guild Executive Director will host the monthly beer-themed after-hours event, giving visitors the chance to mingle with a DC beer insider while also touring through the historic Brewmaster’s Castle.

The DC Brewers’ Guild is the first modern brewers’ guild in DC and was founded in 2014 at the Heurich House Museum, home of DC’s most successful Brewmaster. When the Chr. Heurich Brewing Company closed in 1956, the production of beer for distribution was halted in Washington, DC. It wasn’t until 2011, with the founding of DC Brau, that beer production and distribution manufacturing returned to the district. Focused on connecting local craft beer producers and fostering community development and pride, the DC Brewers’ Guild has gone on to host annual events such as DC Beer Week and Hopfest. At History & Hops, visitors will be able to enjoy local beer in the room where the DC Brewers Guild was formed.

Kathy Rizzo has spearheaded the development of the DC Brewers Guild, expanding its role in local beer promotion. Growing up in the food service business, Kathy’s love of hospitality and the food and beverage industries have given her particular insight into the world of DC Beer. Now, she’ll share this wealth of knowledge, and a few of her favorite local beers, with History & Hops visitors as they gain unparalleled access to mingle and discuss her years of experience with the DC Brewers’ Guild and craft beer in the District of Columbia.

Tickets for History & Hops hosted by Kathy Rizzo are $30 per person and include tastings, snacks and tours of the Heurich House Museum. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit http://bit.ly/HHMay2017. Guests must be 21 or older. All proceeds benefit the preservation and growth of the Heurich House Museum.

About History & Hops: History & Hops is a monthly series at the Heurich House Museum that highlights the home’s brewery-related history. The museum preserves the former Dupont Circle home of D.C.’s most successful brewer Christian Heurich (1842-1945) and enriches the cultural life of Washington, DC. Every third Thursday from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, the museum partners with local beer insiders for house tours and beer tastings. Self-guided tours through Heurich’s well-preserved Victorian mansion will feature information about his brewery and the D.C. region’s rich brewing history.  All proceeds benefit the preservation and growth of the Heurich House Museum.

About Heurich House Museum: The Heurich House Museum preserves the legacy of Christian Heurich and enriches the cultural life of Washington, DC. The mansion was built from 1892-94 by German immigrant, local brewer, and philanthropist Christian Heurich (1842-1945). Recognized as Washington, D.C.’s most successful brewer, he ran the Chr. Heurich Brewing Co. until his death at 102. The mansion is notable for its technological innovations, original interiors, and rich archival collection of one of the most important local families. The museum, located at 1307 New Hampshire Avenue in Dupont Circle, is open for regular public events and public tours Thursday through Saturday at 11:30 am, 1:00 and 2:30 pm.

On Saturday, May 6, 2017, the Heurich House Museum will open its doors for free, kid-friendly, self-guided tours. Kids in the Castle allows visitors to explore the gilded details of the Heurich family home at their own pace. Children and their parents are invited to wander through the house and complete a photo scavenger hunt to win prizes, then head to the museum garden to play games and relax.

Since opening its doors, the Heurich House Museum has had restricted access for children. This event, the second in the Kids in the Castle series taking place throughout the year, allows children to experience the Heurich House Museum in a way they have not been able to before. This German influenced family home provides visitors a glimpse of the past, and exposes children to a different time in DC’s history. Children can let their imaginations wander as they take in three floors of this ornate mansion, while also learning about history in a fun and engaging environment.

To register for this event, please go to http://bit.ly/KitCMay.
